Es espectacular, tiene una vista majestuosa, sus villas son de lujo, una construcción en medio de la naturaleza que las hacen hermosas y exóticas, las playas cercanas son muy bellas y de fácil acceso, la atención de los encargados muy buena, no se permiten mascotas, pero como mi perro esta educado y es de raza mediana, pedí permiso y lo dejaron alojar
“La posizione, la piscina, gli spazi ampi, la pulizia, la cortesia di tutti. Ottimo per vacanze in compagnia ma anche x famiglie e coppie.”
I went in December, the weather was quite pleasant. The trip from the airport to VillaNoria went very well, thanks to the new road. When I arrived at the house on top of the hill, I was overwhelmed by the view. You CAN actually hear the ocean. The beach is only a couple of minutes away by car or motorbike. It’s like walking into a commercial! Endless beaches and few people. The houses are great! The Dutch owners have really put some effort into it. The houses are modern and spacious decorated. Very nice bedrooms, with luxury bathrooms. Ideal when you want some privacy, just like the whole premises. Housekeeping is excellent. Sandy and Odalis were very friendly and helpful. Las Terrenas is a nice village with excellent bars and restaurants, a couple of markets and all kinds of shops. Overall I think it is one of the best retreats for a relaxing holiday. Or even a sabbatical. I can’t wait to go back again!
We were lucky enough to spend ten days at Villa Noria during our recent couples trip. What a wonderful place! The spaces are clean, tastefully decorated, and well-appointed. The owner, Hans, and his wife recently renovated the property. Each villa has two identical bedrooms with en-suite baths which fit our needs perfectly. Staying up in the hills not just afforded us breathtaking views, but provided cool breezes and some quiet away from town. We hung out on the deck or by the pool whenever we stayed in. The bugs were barely noticeable too, as we learned that the owner sprays to keep them at bay. The daily cleaning service was much appreciated and the staff will even go so far as to cook meals for you if you so choose. We were grateful for the nightly watchman, which the owners kindly provides, though we found the area so safe and friendly it didn’t seem necessary. The owners live up the hill and are there to answer any questions. On the days that they were not in town, they provided the number of their nice neighbor to assist us.
The Samana peninsula is an easy area to navigate, safe, and hospitable. Villa Noria is about a ten minute drive from Las Terrenas, a town with a lively mix of ex-Pats and friendly locals. There is good shopping, especially if you’re looking to purchase artwork, as well as delicious restaurants. (We highly recommend Mojitos just east of town and Restaurant Luis on Playa Coson.) The nightlife is also abuzz, especially at Pueblo de Los Pescadores, a strip of restaurants and bars on the beach. Though just laying on the beach and watching the kite surfers is entertaining, there are many excursions one could do. Consider taking a dip in the Limon waterfall, renting quads for the day, or discovering the beaches around Las Galeras.
Thank you to Hans, his wife, and their staff for a lovely vacation. We hope to be back someday.
